This post is to give you some insight on the absolutely genius design and idea behind the cyber truck. I'm not going to beat around the bush, lets get right to it:
One thing comes to mind for everyone when they first see the Cuber Truck - It's ugly. Sure, it's not the sexy traditional Tesla design, no, but there are several reasons why it looks the way it looks, and it may be a surprise to you.
It's extremely cheap to manufacture - Unlike almost every other car on the market, Cyber Truck is designed like a piece of origami. A single sheet of Steel is used and cut from a single industrial sized CNC machine and then bent into shape. Other cars have thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of parts cast together, making things like repairs, manufacturing, and maintenance very expensive. The steel look isn't very attractive, but it is undoubtedly durable as all hell - and lightweight too. It's cheap unlike aluminium, which is now one of the industries more expensive "per pound metal". According to infomine.com, aluminum averages around .80 cents per pound, whereas steel averages out to be $0.40 cents per pound - half the cost! And now with the Gigafactory pumping out batteries like no tomorrow, L-ion batteries are easy to come by and cheap as well!
I talked a little bit about design in the cost, but one thing to note about it's design other than the simplicity of manufacturing is how straight and "edgy" it is. Think about this for a second.
